We have been EVA laminating since 2011. In 2011 we installed and setup our RCN EVA kiln that would enable us to continue manufacturing things such as floors, barriers and decorative items with a modern up-to-date process. Our laminating kiln is based on a 3000 x 2000mm bed size which is ideally matched on size to our stock materials and other machining processes. We are able to assemble laminations ranging from 6.8mm to 50mm in thickness.
Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) laminating is a process by which two or more glasses are bonded together under vacuum and heat with EVA being the separatory bonding material. Laminating enables the properties of two or more glass items to be combined into a composite material. These composites can have increased strength and/or safety properties over monolithic glasses making them suitable for floors and barriers. We have passed EN14449 certifiction for laminating and maintain regular testing as part of our production control systems. EVA can also be used to encapsulate decorative foils and interlayers in the creation of decorative glass composites. These composites can then be installed as finished items or then be further processed to achieve the job specification.
